Welcome to what promises to be another FANTASTIC school year at L. K. Moss Elementary School –
HOME OF THE EAGLES! Each year brings a new beginning with new opportunities for learning. As we
begin the 2017-2018 school year, our pledge to you - our students, parents and all stakeholders—is that
this will be an exciting year full of engaging, meaningful and rigorous lessons and work-sessions in our
classrooms and throughout our school.
Throughout this year, we will strive for academic success as well as share in those fun and special
activities which create memories that last a lifetime. We are also committed to creating a school
environment where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident. With
your help and support, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and many
worthwhile traditions, with none being more important than our tradition of being “Committed to
Excellence”. Everyone associated with the Marion County School System and community is dedicated to
providing the very best for our students.
At L. K. Moss Elementary School, we are respectful, we operate responsibly, we listen and learn, we
expect the best, and we reach for success. We do all of these things because we are EAGLES. Our staff of
highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is dedicated to providing our students
experiences of high caliber and quality learning, continued growth, leadership opportunities, and high
expectations for achievement. We pledge this will be our daily focus, and we invite and encourage you,
our stakeholders, to work in partnership with us to seize these opportunities. We want, need, and value
your involvement and support in your child’s education. This is the key to the success of our students as
they begin and continue on their educational journey.
You have much to be proud of at L. K. Moss Elementary School. The learning bar is high and the
challenge is to continue preparing, working, and striving for excellence. Together, we can accomplish
great things. We are proud of our students, faculty, staff, school and community.

school policies and procedures. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
Thank you for entrusting us to nurture, encourage, teach, challenge and enjoy your precious children for
